Cambodia warns media outlets against publishing fake news

Cambodia has warned that action may be taken against any media outlets publishing fake news that could cause widespread panic in the country.

Its Information Ministry issued the warning in a notice, with ministry spokesman Meas Sophorn saying it was needed to remind journalists in Cambodia, especially those in online media, to act with professionalism and respect the law.

“We still see a small number of local media not following the press law, so the ministry released the notice,” said Sophorn, according to a Khmer Times report.
